Buttery avocado pairs perfectly with nutty chickpeas, offering a host of health benefits. Aside from contributing to this recipe’s rich texture, avocados contain more potassium than bananas and are loaded with heart-healthy, cancer-fighting properties. Chickpeas, or garbanzo beans, contain essential protein and dietary fiber. The paired superfoods make a killer healthy combo!
